Our Mission

Imagining Alternative Futures

We support the visionaries and mavericks who embrace the uncharted territory of integrative leadership. Those who are unafraid to be both spiritual and practical, vulnerable and powerful, unapologetic and compassionate, who embrace difference in search of a common ground. The NEI works with these emergent leaders to harness their gifts for a new earth.



EMERGE: Integrative leadership for social impact and cultural change 

In our uncharted times, we need empathetic leaders and community creators who follow their passion to serve, the wisdom of our sacred earth, and the guidance of spirit. The NEI is offering an affordable three-month integrative leadership coaching program for leaders who are inspired to take action to benefit their communities and the earth. The training is designed to support those who are interested in building initiatives for a world in transition. It is a perfect balance between a regenerative retreat, transformational leadership training, and an incubator for the next evolution of your work.

Explore the Self

Draw on neuroscience, psychological insights, and spiritual teachings and tap into your wisdom to move towards greater fulfillment, resilience, passion and knowledge of self.

Build Community

Design and facilitate new prototypes for community engagements that foster deeper connections across differences. Explore how thriving, resilient communities can create collective impact for a world in transition.

Protect the Earth

Get religious about our planet! Re-connect with the earth and learn from it; build community-based initiatives in service of a thriving ecosystem.

Program: Free!

Accommodation: As low as $120 a week 

Scholarships and sponsorship available.  


The upcoming training is offered to eight individuals who will live and learn together at an awe-inspiring lakeside retreat centre, nestled in the forest amongst the beautiful trails and mountains of Bowen Island, BC. The program is holistic and immersive: equal parts a regenerative retreat, transformational leadership training, and an incubator for the next evolution of your work. By integrating an understanding of psychology, human development, healing and growth, spiritual wisdom, and creativity, participants will become more impactful as community builders and caretakers of the earth.

Our immersive retreat-like training is a radical mentorship, which integrates the knowledge of the self, the power of community and the wisdom of the earth, to help you gain clarity about your purpose and develop a greater capacity to achieve it. 


We seek a new kind of stewardship, and community, for a world that’s still not born. And we don’t really care what you call it— leadership, mentorship, or coaching, because, in the end, you will be the one birthing it. 


In our uncharted times, we need empathetic leaders and community creators who follow their passion to serve, the wisdom of our sacred earth and the guidance of spirit.



Because you can hear the call 

to participate in this great adventure 

to wake up and grow up

as a collective



Don't change a thing! Truly a worthwhile workshop. Thank you. And to people who are coming for the next workshop: You are very lucky!

The work we have done together has changed me so much. I came feeling broken and I feel so alive and present. Thank you!

Shahar not only listened; he introduced practical ways to grow in courageous learning and be more loving towards myself and in turn, others.
